WASHINGTON: Anglers Focusing Efforts On Early Spring Chinook

SW Washington

Most anglers in the district are focusing their efforts on an early spring chinook. Effort and catches should begin to ramp up in the coming weeks, especially if water conditions continue to warm and flows remain stable. Anglers in the Cathlamet area are taking a rare chinook on herring.

Steelheaders in the area are focused on wild fish primarily. Hatchery returns to the Cowlitz, Kalama, Lewis and Washougal remain low. For clarification, only the North Fork of the Lewis from Johnson Creek upstream is closed. The mainstem Lewis remains open.
